Detention is never the answer, especially during a global pandemic. We are only as safe as the most vulnerable of our communities which is why we are demanding that @DHS_Wolf release all children with their parents immediately. https://t.co/vWzSZRj7pR

Great piece from @JoseWoss and @DianeFCNL on the need to address militarism both at home AND abroad. Check it out! https://t.co/YEY526oRtI

🗣️📣 We're all living on Native land! The government can't throw away these treaties when its convenient---incredibly grateful to the #SupremeCourt for affirming that yesterday. https://t.co/CN3TYhUdFu

Makes sense to us! 🤷‍‍ The pandemic has only underscored how misplaced and unwise our defense spending is. https://t.co/n15jWdyYjt

Landmines are indiscriminate and inhumane weapons that cause suffering long after a conflict has ended. We're committed to ending use of them by the U.S. government. https://t.co/nwAO0Q5nOs

3.7 million more adults are having trouble putting food on the table than before the pandemic. This is a hunger crisis, and it will grow worse without congressional intervention. Our lawmakers must boost #SNAP benefits in the next #COVID19 relief package! https://t.co/qN5ggdboUq

This country has too much money and too many resources to allow children to go hungry. This graph from @hamiltonproj is particularly striking: child hunger has increased across the board, but children of color are experiencing it the worst. https://t.co/2FbdB9t9gQ https://t.co/u4Gr1GPcA2

A five-year war has already created an unimaginable humanitarian crisis in #Yemen. The pandemic will make it even worse. We signed on to this letter with 19 other orgs calling on House leadership to halt bomb/missile sales to the Saudi coalition: https://t.co/YUQBoCyqbk https://t.co/PJIWj4dmPi

DAY 5: Direct cash payments provide immediate relief and effectively boost economic activity. The #HeroesAct includes another round of $1200 stimulus checks, boosts the amount each family receives for dependents, and expands who can receive them. #7DaysOfHeroes

Read our letter along with 19 other orgs to stop sending U.S. air-to-ground munitions to the Saudi/UAE-led coalition fighting in the war in Yemen

What @CoryBooker said! The Justice in Policing Act is a critical starting point in addressing police violence and racism. Tell your members to support it here: https://t.co/umkwciyrO5 https://t.co/uIpMrRb5z8

Want to know why Congress needs to extend SNAP benefits: About 10% of US households are having trouble finding food during the pandemic https://t.co/mGVLjo8JI5 Act @FCNL https://t.co/yL4qW4uR0B

"Based on recent polling, a full military withdrawal from Afghanistan is supported by more than two-thirds of the American people – including 73 percent of military veterans." https://t.co/cX2qODEqQa

"The first planned federal execution in 17 years is that of a convicted killer whose victims’ relatives have told President Trump that putting him to death would only compound their grief." This is not what justice looks like. #AbolishTheDeathPenalty https://t.co/83BseFZU2T

Happy to announce our July Quaker Changemaker event! Tune in on July 29 to hear from @HassanElTayyab and Tom Rawson on how they use music to further their advocacy for peace and justice. https://t.co/MDnb5g724X

"People are so shocked. Wait until they find out this is actually all native land."- Kerri Colfer. Dare to dream. #SupremeCourt says much of eastern #Oklahoma remains #Indian land https://t.co/PpJCsENYH6

We applaud this critical ruling from the Supreme Court! The U.S. government has an obligation to uphold its promises to Native peoples.

"As a result, many of the arguments before us today follow a sadly familiar pattern. Yes, promises were made, but the price of keeping them has become too great, so now we should just cast a blind eye. We reject that thinking." https://t.co/hzEwgNKkgS
